Wine of the Week: La Crema Pinot Noir 2009 (CA) $20

By March 14, 2012

Follow me on:

The 2009 La Crema Pinot Noir integrates fruit and earth, layers of complexity and a rich supple body into one seamless package. On the nose you'll find plenty of dark cherry, plum and black licorice.  The palate profile reveals a second session of ripe fruit with cherry taking the limelight well supported by layers of raspberry and dark chocolate.

A remarkable dance of herbal influences and earth-driven tones play second fiddle on the palate followed by silky tannins and an elegant, enduring finish.  Consider pairing this Pinot with braised chicken, mushroom risotto, grilled salmon or herb-infused sauces.
